Re: SSSSM - Part Deux

Engine is good, mosquitos and Gnats are not bad. South Anchorage, Matachen, for 2 days and nights, marina Fonatur for 2 days and nights, then Chacala probably then PV. There I will stay a few days before heading south some more. maybe I'll find a decent sailing companion there. Going Croc hunting today.... The $12 'Jungle Tour' with a a few others from other boats. Touristy things are sometimes on the schedule... Oh wait, did I say 'Schedule'? I meant itenary.., or list, or ?...
Have a great day everybody, and have good fortune in all your endevaours and you Quest.

Re: SSSSM - Part Deux

If I can't pick up the mainsail myself the boat's too big. I'm planning to stay in the 27-32' range. Plenty big enough.

Re: SSSSM - Part Deux

I get that, z, but I am such a Luddite. No likely powered systems. That might change in a few years. The windlass, too.

Re: SSSSM - Part Deux

i got no fancy schmancy nothin..and i am old and broken on top of that...but this is an easy boat to sail unless there is no wind. the main is huger than huge, and i havent lazy jacks yet...but sailing under jib n jigger is easy..everything is in cockpit..roller furled jib, no fancy winches..pure holysheetsmuscle this, and mizzensail...otto pile it,and onward..... easy and enough room to actually live in...

Re: SSSSM - Part Deux

Sounds like you're happy with your set-up. I had all the lines running aft on my last boat (40') but still miss my monsun. The only thing I didn't care for was the traveler in the middle of the cockpit.

Angry Re: SSSSM - Part Deux

Hi everyone! Please allow me to introduce myself! I am a single 46yr young guy, craftsman by trade and a new boat owner.

I used to ski professionally and was an Instructor in Colorado for a good period of my life. I still ski but the ole knees can't take a full season so I'll be sailing the rest of my days!

I bought my boat last Sept. and am wowed every time I sail her. I plan on going to a much warmer place soon and am very much looking forward to meet some of you along the way.

I started a blog that I've only written a little in and a website that I do't know what to do with yet...I'll figure it out soon enough. Blog is under my sig.

Seem to be havin trubs with my pics...

The boat is a 78 Islander 32MII. I renamed her "Brilliant Sea".....get it?

Can't wait for this crappy winter to let loose so I can cut loose.

Cheers, I'll prolly be a regular here so that's all I have for now!
